Where can I obtain information on plywood gusset (gussett) plate connections and plywood gusset trusses?


The Midwest Plan Service publishes a Structures and Environment Handbook which address gussets in section 406.5 under Wood Truss Design. The most recent edition is a 1987 Revised 11th Edition.
